We have already talked about Google’s Nest WiFi and we even have an analysis. A device that has been with us for about three years and is about to see a successor appear. It is at least what we can deduce from the leaks that let us see a new Nest router compatible with WiFi 6 and 6E.
There were already rumors about the possibility that Google was working on a new router compatible with WiFi 6E networks thanks to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and now the price has been leaked in an online store from a device called Google Nest Wifi Pro 6E.
Less WiFi congestion
Although it appears with the name Google Nest Wi-Fi Pro 6Eit will probably end up being called Google Nest Wifi Pro. And now, thanks to the B&H store chain, it is known that the new device will be compatible with WiFi 6E networks and even the price.
The product page confirms compatibility with WiFi 6E, a standard gradually present in more and more devices and that in ideal conditions, allows to reach a transfer speed of up to 9.6 Gbps.
Google keeps track of Amazon, which already offers its new routers compatible with WiFi 6E in Spain. Those of Mountain View bet on the triple band system of 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz, offering compatibility with WiFi 4,5,6 and 6E.
The Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E compatibility It is possible thanks to the use of a new channel that cooperates in the bandwidth between 6 GHz and 7 GHz, which, being less congested, offers less interference and facilitates communication between devices.
In the offer that appears on the website, it is striking that it is offered only the possibility of acquiring a device and not packs with two or three units like the current Nest WiFi has.
Also, no clues about appearance that the new model may have, and the aesthetics of the Nest WiFi that we already know will be followed, it will opt for a different design.
Price and availability
For now, there is no official information on the price of Google’s Nest Wifi Pro, so we only have the prices as a guide. $399.99 that publish in B&H. More expensive than the 159 euros that the current Nest WiFi costs. It is to be hoped that we will have more details during the Made by Google event on October 6 in which, among others, we meet the new Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
